** One What If: "What If ThePunisher Was the Stern But Fatherly Type?" This turns the normally trigger-happy crime-killer Frank Castle into a hilariously stereotypical strict father who sends the Blob to his room without supper, grounds Electro and forbids him from watching television, forces Doctor Doom to sit in a corner and think about what he's done and makes ComicBook/{{Galactus}} write "I Will Not Eat Inhabited Planets" 500 times on a blackboard no bigger than Galactus' foot, forcing the world eater to get down on all fours to write on it!

* "What If...No One Was Watching the Watcher?" us an issue that takes a break from the normally serious core concept of the series and instead just makes up ridiculously goofy shit. Even the front cover! It's literally Uatu the Watcher in MarilynMonroe's "blown skirt" pose.

Added DiffLines:

** "Adventures in Spidey-Babysitting", where Spider-Man is forced to take his mutated son Spidey-Baby with him while crime-fighting. One highlight of the story is when Hydro-Man is defeated by being trapped inside Spidey-Baby's diaper. Definitely not one of Morris Bench's better days.

** "What If Thanos Turned Galactus into a Human Being?" is the central story of the issue. Rather than kill him as he attempted to, Thanos subjects Galactus to the worst possible punishment...being turned into a human being! And not just any human, but ElvisPresley! Not just a good lookalike, but the King himself! Cue Galactus Presley being taken in by a kindly Elvis fan and making it big as the King himself on a comeback tour until Adam Warlock tells him who he really is and his role in the universal balance. Cue Galactus...deciding to stay as Elvis. Even Uatu's having fun nonetheless, grinning as he attends one of Galactus Presley's concert tours.

* [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/42/ Longest Sunset]] kicks off the article by defining what qualifies as a sunset and what doesn't. Examples of the latter include the sun crossing the horizon partway and then reversing direction (AltText: "the sun changes its mind and goes back to bed"), the sun ''splitting in two via osmosis'' and half of it setting ("this is half a sunset"), the sun ''landing on the horizon and hatching like an egg'' ("you bred sun-raptors?"), and a ''[[VideoGame/Minecraft square sun]]'' that doesn't get a chance to do anything before the narration cuts it off ("aww, man, you didn't even let me try").

* [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/53/ Drain the Oceans]]. Sure, the oceans would be gone and with them most of the biosphere and planetary habitability, but the real major change is [[spoiler: The Netherlands conquering the planet.]]
** In [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/54/ Drain the Oceans: Part II]], after the ocean is finished being deposited at Mars, [[spoiler:the Netherlands use the ocean-draining portal to conquer Mars as well]].

* [[http://what-if.xkcd.com/53/ Drain the Oceans]]. Sure, the oceans would be gone and with them most of the biosphere and planetary habitability, but the real major change is [[spoiler: The Netherlands conquering the planet.]] Also, Munroe decides that since all that water has to go ''somewhere'', the exit portal should be on Mars to avoid any risk of atmospheric re-entry. Innocuous enough as is, but he then specifies that it should be placed [[spoiler:directly over [[ButtMonkey the Curiosity rover]], so that it can finally find water on Mars.]]

Not because of the kinematics at all (which amount to nothing), but simply because the question presupposes magically gathering every human into one location, with no implied way back home.]]
